Swanwick Primary School

Special Educational Needs

Swanwick Primary School is a mainstream, fully inclusive school where all classes are of mixed ability and teachers provide work that is suitably differentiated to match the ability of each group.  This is achieved though the effective deployment of a wide range of staff, resources and materials.

If your child has special educational needs or additional needs, the school follows the Code of Practice to ensure that inclusion is achieved and progress is made.  Parents will become informed that their child is being registered on the special needs register and will have the opportunity for an informal meeting with the class teacher and/or the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) to discuss the type of provision that can be put in place to aid progress in their area of difficulty.

Depending on the level of support your child receives, they may have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) which sets achievable SMART targets in smaller steps to achieve progress and development.  Children play a central role in evaluating their progress and helping to determine future targets.  The IEPs are reviewed three times a year and parents are invited and encouraged to attend these meetings.

Some children require the support of specialist agencies such as Speech and Language Therapists, Counsellors, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists etc.  If this is the case for your child, parents will be kept fully informed of the process. We at Swanwick Primary School pride ourselves on establishing and maintaining close communication and links between families, school and outside agencies making sure that your child remains the central focus of all our efforts.

The member of staff responsible for special educational needs provision in school and support for staff and parents is: Mrs Melynda Walton.
